Nope to both.
Nope to both.
Some form of Tetris?
Nope, a strategy game. Amiga and PC (and probably Atari).
Frank Zappa: the Game?
No idea, but it reminds me of an old Zappa cover.
Trippy. No idea.
Hmm, didn’t think this one was too difficult, but I never know if what I liked back in the day was popular or not. I guess not in this case, or at least it has been forgotten.
This one was mentioned on Qt3 recently in another thread. They even posted the box cover.
It featured a bunch of real world leaders.
Yep, Nuclear War by New World Computing.
I must confess I had never seen the box (I never owned a 16-bits computer, poor little me), but the cheesy art and your mention of a strategy game with real world leaders was pretty much a given.
Played it a ton at a friend’s. Cold war kids and the joy of playing with those fearful toys - same appeal as Theatre Europe, I guess.
Wow, that is a name I had completely forgotten about. I don’t know if it was released in the States, but I bought it on a vacation in England and then read the rule book a few dozen times before I got back and could actually play it. So many memories from this thread.
I don’t believe this is even box art.
I’ll argue it is box art, by coping out and resorting to the wide-encompassing classical philosophical definition to art, which is something done by the hand of man. And while I think this wasn’t done by robots, yet, Photoshop might have been involved a bit too much, it seems!
Not great art. But appropriate, in my opinion. Obviously inspired by another cover, if this might help somebody.
